While you would expect London’s waterways to be filled with all kinds of strange and bizarre objects, I am sure many of you wouldn’t have included sub-machine guns on the list.
Finding a small stretch of water which was clear of weeds, 36-year-old Gareth Bryer popped his magnet in and started pulling out various items including an old medal, a drain cover and a motorbike part.
Close to walking away from the area, admitting he wasn’t ‘finding much’, Gareth decided to try one more time expecting to pull up another manhole cover when he realized his magnet had caught something.
As he pulled the gun out of the water, Gareth’s surprise and excitement is clear as he exclaimed, ‘Oh my f*cking God’.
While Gareth thought he may find old items related to the factory, he didn’t expect to find ‘a modern gun’ which is a potential murder weapon’.
